Tournaments 2015/16


Throughout the course of the year, there are a number of Junior and Adult Tournaments run both locally and nationally. The National tournaments are categorised into Bronze, Silver and Gold, which allow you to compete against people from all across the country, and issue ranking points dependant on how you do in that particular tournament. This then gives you a National Ranking which can be improved upon the better you do in tournaments. The higher the grade of tournament, the more ranking points awarded.

The Essex County Badminton Association (ECBA) host, at the start of each season, the Essex Restricted Championships for the Under 13, Under 15, Under 17 and Senior age groups. You can find the information regarding these and downloadable forms further down the page.
